Apr 28, 2013 (Started Nov 15, 2010)

  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for stiffness/spasticity)
  • Side effects
    Severe (My left arm became very weak. I could not use it to lift anything or even wash my hair. It wore of this past narch. Decided not to have any more injections., weakness in left arm)
  • Adherence
    Never taken as prescribed
  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Advice & Tips: The first 2 times that I received the Botox injections my arm was not rigid after being on it for 3 weeks. It wore off in three months so I had to go back for another injection. The third time I noticed that my arm was a little weak so we decreased my dosage this helped. Then in November of 2012 I received more injections including my shoulder at that time my arm was like I had a stroke I could not use it at all.. So in April 2013 we decided not to continue the Botox. I still have stiffness but I am able to use my arm .
